Nintendo has been incredibly resistant to making a mainstream Pokemon game for home consoles, insisting that the formula works best for handheld devices like the Gameboy and Nintendo DS. That hasn’t stopped environmental artist Evan Liaw from creating his own idea of what Pokemon could look like on the Wii U. The following shots are renders created by Liaw in UDK of the Pokemon Center, a staple of the games since the original Red and Blue.
What do you think of the shots? Are they too hyper-realistic for you or would you love to see a Pokemon game in this style? Purely speaking of the monsters, the realistic style might be able to be pulled off if the Pokemon were rendered similar to the baddies we saw in Capcom’s Dragon’s Dogma. Check out the rest of the shots of the PokeCenter render below.
